Hey Kathy (presentation colors question)

82 Views, 17 Replies
11-04-2002 01:38 AM
I remember a while back you had a problem with the colors of parts not
working correctly in presentation views. I searched the support group but
couldn't find the right thread (probably looked right over it). What did
you finally find out about this? The reason I ask is that I'm seeing it in
R6 as well. A part that has two colors on it is coming through as one solid
color. Also textures that are different on two different parts are showing
as the same texture in the IPN. Figured I'd go straight to the
"presentation queen"

Thanks,

My problem was that I had altered the default colour in one part file. Once
I changed the default back to the original and used a different name
everything worked out fine. As to the other with two colours. If you
select the part in the IPN, what does the style drop down say? I think it
needs to be As Material if I remember correctly.

They are As Material. Perhaps it's since I took the same color Green(flat)
and added a different texture to it in two different files?

As for the problem with a part that has two colors on it not displaying
properly I was incorrect before. It appears properly in the IPN but a IDW
of the IPN causes them to show in the same color. This, I'm thinking, may
be a bug..

Having any two colours with different textrues would propably do it. I have
not installed 6 so I can't comment about a bug. Maybe someone else can try
and duplicate it.

I'm more concerned about the second part of the problem.

It seems that is you assign a part two different colors via the properties
method (no textures involved) only the base color shows in the ipn.

No, Kathy I appreciate the help on the first one as well. It made sense.
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to sound like I was not appreciative.

I think both of these are bugs. Haven't heard from any Autodeskers lately..
you guys around?

I just looked at a simple presentation where I added two differently colored
features to my parts - both cuts, but one was colored with texture - and the
colors were there.

Of course - I'm using a recent internal build that you'll see as a SP soon.

BTW - With Bill's (announced) departure - I have inherited "presentations" -
so as we move forward those will be something in which I'll be more
involved.

Gary can you try just using two different colors. (not using textures).
See if they come through. Also are you looking at the IPN (they work here)
or at the IDW (here is where we loose the colors).

"I have inherited presentations"

Lucky you
